Adolfo's Restaurant Review

: Frenchmen Street is increasingly popular for its diverse collection of restaurants, but it has been home to Adolfo’s for as long as anyone can remember. Dimly lit and funky, this neighborhood café is perched above a barroom and overlooks the street's nightlife. It is well known by locals as a bargain, with reliable food, even if owner-chef Adolfo Perez is occasionally a bit heavy-handed with the salt. The New Orleans-style Italian-influenced menu features such dishes as cannelloni stuffed with local crab meat and cream sauce, and oysters with spinach and Pernod. Seafood is the specialty, and each night the kitchen offers a wide array of fish with a choice of sauces, including the rich, shellfish-studded "ocean sauce." Indeed, the real reason to dine here is for what the chef creates with Gulf fish. Most entrées come with a portion of spaghetti in red sauce. Desserts are lackluster but the cheesecake is respectable. The wine list is rudimentary and diners must fetch their own cocktails from the separate bar operation downstairs. Service is perfunctory --- on a good night.
